Wind turbine significantly reduces carbon emissions for Walkers
Walkers decided that it was important to try and reduce its energy consumption, and wanted to be fossil fuel free by 2023. In order to achieve this it felt that renewable energy, specifically wind, was the best solution. The plan was to install a wind turbine on its manufacturing plant in Skelmersdale, West Lancashire. This project was an important step in helping Walkers to achieve its goal.
After carrying out all the necessary surveys and public consultations, the planning application was submitted in October 2011 and subsequently granted on appeal in March 2013.
